Capture of Militia.

We noticed in our paper of yesterday a report that Col. Baldwin, of the 31st regiment Virginia Militia, and a number of men under his command, had been captured by the Yankees near Bloomery, in Hampshire county. We had indulged the hope that this report was not well founded, but later information has dissipated this hope, and we have now the painful intelligence that the report was unquestionably true. The number captured was forty-eight, a number of whom were citizens of Winchester. Lieut. Col. Thomas McCoul had also fallen into the hands of the enemy, but succeeded in effecting his escape. The capture took place on Friday morning last.
